This chapter analyzes inter-group relations in three neighbourhoods of the German city of Nuremberg. A thematic focus is placed on inter-group conflict in order to illustrate and deepen the general understanding of integration as a form of ‘discordant harmony’. Through a detailed analysis of processes of emergence, development, and settlement of neighbourhood conflicts in two neighbourhoods (Werderau, Langwasser) – contrasted against a case where peaceful interethnic relations prevail (Gostenhof) – the chapter shows the ambivalent nature of neighbourhood-level interethnic conflict, which can certainly disrupt but also ultimately promote inter-group relations depending on a plurality of factors among which an important role is played by the capacity and will of local policy communities to interpret, face and manage conflicts.
